We have visited this Bistro many times and have always enjoyed the food and the convenience. Last night (Friday), the bistro was very empty, even though the theatre was chock a block full. We were faced with a waitress who was obviously not trained, she...More

Please accept our apology for this. We are very disappointed to have fallen this far short of your expectations. The manager's service report for that evening did mention that there was a send-back because of food not being hot, but he clearly had a different...More

Side Dish is a good choice for dinner before watching a performance, as it allows one to relax and enjoy your meal without stressing about time. The ambiance is so-so, the menu is small but offers meat, fish and vegetarian options. We had a dim-sum...More

Visited the SideDish for a pre-dinner to Joseph's Technicolor Dreamcoat. We were one of 3 couples and were well received. Ordered a bottle of wine that was well priced and very pleasant. The starters are overpriced as are the desserts with pricing up to R90.00...More

Appropriate venue for a meal and theatre combo. Our party of 4 arrived early at 1810 (3rd table seated), but slow service, for only two courses, meant we were the second last to leave (just made curtain up at 20.00). It was busy and waitresses...More

So very convenient to do dinner before a show. Sadly we were disappointed by the lack of support. We were one of 4 tables. Food good, wine list limited, good service, good vibe.

Our small group went to see the musical Joseph at the theatre and popped upstairs for luncheon before the show. The restaurant was decked out very smartly with lovely glasses, cutlery and crockery. The tablecloths were snowy white, and the serviettes, stood to attention, just...More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Firstly, please accept our unreserved apology for a disappointing experience. We are completely at a loss as to how/why the kitchen could present one perfect steak, partnered by an overcooked one. They cook thousands of...More
